Crate GX-15R guitar combo mods
Rubber feet installation
Not very difficult.
Mains transformer relocation
I wanted to get more space inside the chassis. Moving the transformer
away should also reduce hum. I made a simple mount from aluminum for
the transformer. I also added a mains fuse (every amp should have one!).
Reverb tank mod
The reverb tank was installed inside the chassis with double-sided
tape. I didn't like that. So I made a proper enclosure for the tank
from aluminum with shock-absorbing springs.
I mounted the reverb box at the side of the chassis using self-tapping
screws. As you can see from the pictures, there's now plenty of room
inside the chassis for service and future modifications (like remote
channel switching ?).
This amp is now very quiet - no hum even with the reverb level at maximum,
